Paul Rudd Wishes Other Filmmakers Besides Judd Apatow Paid Attention to Him

I always just assumed that Judd Apatow's posse made every single movie together because it seems like a huge blast to spend months on set with your hilarious best friends, but Paul Rudd says his solid spot in the Apatow clan is only "about half-half deliberate" and that he doesn't often get the roles he wants when he works with other filmmakers. "It isn't just that I want to work with friends," he told Glamour. "I'd like to work with people I've never worked with before and work in different genres. But one, sometimes I don't get those parts; and two, someone like Judd will say 'Oh we're going to do this one next'.'' Um, hope Judd's not reading this — I'd be kind of pissed if I were him. Although Paul was sure to add that he loves being surrounded by his friends at work, and that there's "no diva energy or jerks" among them. Seriously, Paul, you've got a pretty sweet deal going, especially because one of the only non-Apatow movies you've been in recently was How Do You Know, and that was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. So shut up. Although my favorite Paul Rudd character will always be Josh in Clueless. [Contact Music]


  • Oh no, you guys: Lindsay Lohan is planning to sing the majority of her opening monologue on SNL tonight. Several cast members will back her up, but something tells me even Kristen Wiig might not be able to save the show, especially because, according to TMZ, "nothing's off the table" when it comes to discussing her arrests, jailtime, and morgue duty. Does anyone remember Rumours?? [TMZ]
  • David Hasselhoff, always one for excellent decisions, dressed up as Hitler for a recent concert in London. Why do celebrities always think it's a grand idea to dress up as the Führer? PSA: IT IS NEVER A GOOD MOVE TO DRESS UP AS HITLER, CELEBRITIES. You're welcome. [Janet Charlton]
  • "16 and Pregnant" star Whitney Purvis admitted to stealing a pregnancy test from Walmart, but says there's not another baby on the way. "My boyfriend was with me and he had money," the 20-year-old said, "but I didn't want to freak him out. I was just being stupid with my decisions. I wish I would have handled the situation better." Whitney, who was jailed for a short time for the incident, said she'll never steal again, and that she's excited "because I didn't want another kid." Man. [TMZ]
  • Oprah's cable network experiment isn't going so well, so it looks like she's returning to what she does best: interviewing celebrities. (Maybe she'll also start giving away her "favorite things" again? Because I miss that.) And she's snagged a high-profile celeb for her first interview: Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina, plus her sister-in-law and manager Patricia Houston and Whitney's brother Gary Houston. A rerun of Winfrey's interview with Whitney Houston will follow. [Deadline]
  • Morrissey told Argentine fans during a concert in Cordoba that the Falkland Islands — which he referred to by their Argentinean name, the Malvinas — should belong to them, not the British. "You know of course the Malvinas Islands, everybody knows they belong to Argentina so please do not blame the British people, we know the islands belong to you," the British rocker said before singing The Smiths' "Please, Please, Please, Let Me Get What I Want."

  • Aw, Drake has the stomach flu, which is too bad for his Dallas fans: he canceled a recent concert there because he was feeling too shitty. He was gracious enough to apologize on Twitter. [Contact Music]
  • Martina McBride offered up her Nashville, Tennessee home as a place for locals to weather the deadly tornados currently sweeping the Midwest. Lest you think she's that much of a saint, it's not like she was inviting total strangers to shack up with her — she tweeted that "Any of my friends in Nashville who don't have a safe place or a basement are welcome to come to my house. For real. Starting to look scary outside... And there goes the tornado siren...." Her home survived the storm, so hopefully some of her pals took her up on the offer. [Contact Music]
